Famous quotes containing the word part:

    If man made himself the first object of study, he would see how incapable he is of going further. How can a part know the whole?
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    The most intellectual of men are moved quite as much by the circumstances which they are used to as by their own will. The active voluntary part of a man is very small, and if it were not economised by a sleepy kind of habit, its results would be null.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    Unlike the Concord, the Merrimack is not a dead but a living stream, though it has less life within its waters and on its banks. It has a swift current, and, in this part of its course, a clayey bottom, almost no weeds, and comparatively few fishes.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
